I want to show you these terrific sterling silver beads that I received recently from Auntie's Beads. They have a very good selection of silver beads in general, and an especially nice variety of spacer beads. While there are some instances in which I will use plated metal beads, I really prefer the real thing whenever possible. Since sterling and fine silver can run you into a chunk of change, I was happy to see that the Bali style beads are available individually. The other two styles can be bought in small quantities, so if you are hoping to make a single piece, you won't find that you've just spent your entire bead budget on nothing but spacers!
I've got a couple of pieces in mind that I think these spacers would look good in...stay tuned!
In the picture above, clockwise from the lower right, the beads are as follows:
Bali Dot Row Spacer Bead
Sterling Silver Seamless Beads
Sterling Smooth Rondelles
